i am thinking of paying private and seeing a rhuematologist who i know knows about fibromyalgia,and to ask him to fully examine me and explain his findings in a letter to me and my g.p .as the first person who diagnosed me with fibro was in 2003, and my health has certainly deteriorated since then,that way i would have more recent proof of my mobility issues. it will cost me £220 - £250 but then maybe even though i was put in the wrag group and the tribunal left me in wrag group not support group maybe i could send the dwp new evidence and see whether the decision could be changed(as a rheumatologist will carry more weight than a g.p) if it doesn't help at least i have a more up to date report for dla next year ,what do you think? good idea or bad idea financially??( i know who the rheumatologist is)
